Tube family...

Shruthi at mindfull meanderings is hosting a 'Family' themed Artsy-Craftsy this month. We wanted to join in too. We went through our family photos, talked about each person especially the grandparents who live in India. She does love video chatting with them often. We also read the book 'The family book' by Todd Parr.
I gave putti toilet paper tubes and asked them if she wants to draw faces on them to make people she got really excited and jumped right into it. For the eyes we glued paper punch rounds from white paper(Could use googly eyes but i had none at home). Later she drew nose, mouth and painted hair. For hair glueing pieces of yarn would have looked great too. Then she wanted to color in some dress for the people. So she painted the dress. And i suggested if she wanted to add buttons or beads to them. She chose to add the tiny paper punches again for buttons to dad and make necklaces for me and her. And finally she noticed we are all of the same height, so asked to cut her shorter, which i happily obliged.
We later on put on a puppet show for daddy with these tube people, it was fun:)

I love Todd Parr books! Your tube people turned out so cute and you are right that would be a fun way to make puppets. I am going to keep that in mind. Every kid would love to have a puppet version of himself.
